Welcome to the Lav Shack
We are in the process of breeding Lavender Ameraucanas. Our Lavender stock came from Harry Shaffer. On Good Friday (4/10/09) hatched 6 Lavenders and 7 Split Lavenders. Our goal is to establish a high quality Lavender though selective breeding and for it to be recognized as a standard color. I am particularly interrested in creating a line of lavender wheatens that are not only high quality, but lay a near perfect .blue egg
